2017 COG – ULI Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) Application Deadline
Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) are one of ULI Washington’s signature programs, where a panel of 10-12 senior-level experts work over a concentrated timeline to evaluate and provide market-based feedback on a local development or land use challenge. Panelists are selected from over 2,200 ULI Washington members in the Metropolitan Washington Area based on needed skillsets and expertise to address the problem at hand. Panel member expertise typically includes developers, property owners/managers, investors, designers, planners, engineers, market and financial analysts, as well as members of the public sector. The panel takes place over 1.5 days, with a report of recommendations completed thereafter.
Through a strategic partnership, ULI Washington and COG will deliver three TAPs in COG-designated Activity Centers between June 2017 – June 2018. These TAPs will focus on identifying priority, catalytic strategies to maximize the impacts of investments in Activity Centers and throughout our region. ULI and COG recognize that communities around the region face pressing challenges related to housing affordability. Therefore, TAP applications that include the opportunity to address challenges associated with housing affordability will be given preference.
Cost of the TAP
A typical TAP costs $20,000; TAPs selected through this partnership are reduced by 50%. The cost to the city/county sponsor for this program is $10,000.
